so i found a bit out about the new executive director at camp. i talked to tracy mohr who told me his name was Jody and that he came from a ymca camp in the ozarks. i decided to do search for him, and i found the website from his old camp (camp lakewood. it looks pretty cool and quite a bit like edwards. i then decided to be a stalker and see if camp lakewood counselors were cool like us and had a lj group or something, and they do. so i commented to somebody's think asking about jody and they all love him! so thats really exciting. and he has two kids and a wife. he's very experienced and it seems like he'll be really good for camp, so yay!

the best song in the world...a tribute
This one is for all the lovers out there. i'd like to make a special shout out to sarah halbert.
i wrote this song/poem a while back and didnt knw what it meant until i brought it back out to look at the other day. at the time i wrote it and didnt know what kind of meaning it held. now i think i might know.
can you see// what i have to offer// many things i know// you need.
when i see//the smile on your face//i believe//its meant to be (chorus)
all i know is youre the one for me//with every waking breathe i realize what could be//all i know is youe the one or me//and all i got to dod is make you see
when i look//into your eyes//i see many//beautiful things
when i hold your hand//tight with mine//i cant stop//loving you (chorus)
im laying my heart//out on the line//because....//i want you (chorus)
ps. you dont have to write back write away, if at all. i just needed to get this off my chest. Current Mood: amused

so im sick and so ive been listening to lots of music lately while laying on the couch.well i was listening to wicked which is this really good musical and this song totally made me think of camp people so i thought i would share.....
i've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason bringing something we must learn and we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them and we help them in return well, i don't know if i believe that's true but i know im who i am today because i knew you...
like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes a sun like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood who can say if i've been changed for the better? but because i knew you i have been changed for good...
it well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime so let me say before we part so much of me is made of what i learned from you you'll be be with me like a handprint on my heart and now whatever way our stories end i know you have rewritten mine by being my friend....
like a ship blown from it's mooring by a wind off the sea like a seed dropped by a skybird in a dsitant wood who can say if i've been changed for the better? i do believe i have been changed for the better and because i knew you i have been changed for good...
i love y'all mwah ~julia~ Current Mood: sick

something for y'alls
so i had to write a personal essay for my composition class, and i'm sure you can guess what i wrote it about. that's right...cizamp. so i thought i'd post a few paragraphs...because i didn't really write it for my teacher...i wrote it for myself...and you guys too.
As I walked down the gravel road toward my parents’ car, I felt the lump in my throat getting bigger and bigger. I couldn’t hold it in anymore, so I finally let go. While the tears were streaming down my cheeks, I couldn’t help but smile. I knew that I would be back at Camp Edwards next summer and that the friends I had made would at least get me through the school year. But I never dreamed that I would return to Edwards for a total of seven years and that the friends I would make in the next few summers would last me my whole life. I can’t even imagine what kind of person I would be without everything Edwards has given me.
The summer after I moved to Illinois, I signed up to go to overnight camp with my new best friend, Marilyn, for two weeks. I was ten, and sure I was a little nervous, but isn’t everyone the first time they leave home? But that first day and the days to come were absolutely magical. Everything I did was new, challenging, and exciting. At meals the entire camp sang songs, danced on their tables, and laughed. When nighttime rolled around, I learned new songs at campfire and stayed up all night talking and giggling with my new best friends in my cabin. The day was filled with skill classes where I learned to kayak, sail, make pottery, and do almost anything I wanted to. We had free time to swim and play on the athletic field, or just sit and hang out. My counselors were two of the coolest girls I had ever met, and I’ll never forget them, Megan and Jill. That first summer was, just like my counselors, unforgettable.
Camp Edwards has been a life changing experience and I wouldn’t change any of it for the world. There are so many people there that have helped me become who I am and I have gained so many values and skills that I would not have today if I had chickened out that first summer. Edwards has become my second home and the people have become members of my family. It is an experience I will never forget.
so..i skipped a few paragraphs...but that's all i really wanted to say. i wrote a letter to tracy moore today about some of my beef. if you want to read it...i'll send it to you. but laterly i've been thinking a lot about camp and how much it means to me. i don't know why..maybe it's because it makes me feel comfortable at school...or maybe i'm just realizing how much i missed it this summer. okay. sorry for the extreme sapness...but i love y'alls. and i don't really have anything else to say. soooo...yeah. what?!

hokay. here's my two cents. i was walking to class on the quad and i passed a kid riding a _____cycle to class. now. what ususally comes to mind is a bicycle, right? well, if that's what you thought, you're wrong. he was riding a unicycle...with his backpack and talking on a cell phone. and i was absolutely amazed/in awe. and i decided that only you guys would appreciate this but of uber randomness. enjoy. next time...i'll stop him and take a picture. i almost stopped him today and said "hi! my name's meg...wanna be best friends?" but decided against it...maybe next time.
quote of the day: "holy shit!! that guy's riding a unicycle!! that's freaking awesome!!" - me. Current Mood: impressed
